So far.....

I am sitting in McD's in Alamosa. Our RV made it part way up La Veta Pass in SW Colorado and died. It was partially on the lane of traffic going uphill....very scarey. The kids and I climbed up the mountain, for fear that someone would hit it and send debris flying. God's presence was there. We knew it. He is always faithful.

It took three hours for a tow truck to get us off the mountain. We were frozen to the bone.

I will have to tell you guys the rest of the story....but for now, we spent the night in the RV (after it was towed) to the WalMart parking lot. The temperature was 21 degrees and trust me, it was freezing and we cuddled together for warmth. We are now trying to figure out what to do. Dw thinks a Molatoff (sp?) cocktail thrown into it would be best.

We have about 3 hours till home. Updating twitter and praying we are home soon. A hot shower has probably never sounded better. Thank you for your prayers!!

    I also wanted let you know that I received an email this week telling me that I am "at the top of the list" and will be contacted when a girl becomes available for adoption at Sanyu. I am going to get my Elizabeth! Your posting about singles adopting made a huge impact on members of my family who were less than thrilled with my adoption plan. God bless you!
